Materials that exhibit counter-intuitive property are known as auxetics. Auxetic fabrics are warp knitted with high and low stiffness yarns.

These materials have wide range of applications in fields like medical, soil reinforcement, aerospace, defense, automobile and many more.

Auxetic materials are now being produced as composites, fabrics, foams where monofilament auxetic fibers will be available commercially in near future.
